Hi All,

Can anyone recommend any good two player board games?

We often find board games are set up for 3 people

Old school Mastermind. We play most board games with just 2 people thinking about it. Only Cluedo seems to require 3 or more. We play a lot of Qwirkle, Ingenious and Rummikub.

Carcassonne works for two players, and lasts a good amount of time.

Can recommend 7 Wonders Duel, it's made to be a specific 2 player game. The full version 7 Wonders is also excellent.

Splendor also works well as a two player

Have a look on Zatu Games, very good website, often cheaper than Amazon though they do charge delivery

Pandemic works, as does Forbidden Island. They are both co-operative games, so no falling out grin

Patchwork and Hive are for 2 players
Most games I have are 3 plus

Thought of some more!

Azul - really good game, gets you thinking
Dominion - deck building game
Wingspan - collecting birds for your nature reserve

DH and I love board games and we live in Germany, we go to Spielwiesn every year - massive games convention where you can rent out and play games all weekend!

Awesome, thanks so much everyone! Seven wonders dual looks great!

There's a super fun role playing game called 'Auditions' where each person must act a character/animal aswell as doing a action to go along with it. Honestly it is so good. We played it with the family and kids and we did it for literally hours. I was howling with laughter! i recommend so much.

Heres a link -https://www.amazon.co.uk/Auditions-Family-Performance-Acting-Suitable/dp/B0777Q2VV1/ref=sr_1_1?crid=1Q8WY68ZV6EJH&dchild=1&keywords=auditions+game&qid=1586775284&sprefix=auditions%2Caps%2C146&sr=8-1 its on sale too.

Corinth, FoodFighters, Open Ocean, Waffle Hassle, Dobble - these are all working fine with two players and now you can download them for free to print and play at home.
Here are the download links for these games (and for a few more)
